Sandwiches in a can: Can-do or can-don


Recommended Posts


Well, this has bread, jelly, and PB. :)

Spam is... spam :) lol I had it once like 8 years ago.

Have you had Spam? It's okay, but not my food of choice.

1,295,178 Hawaiians can't be wrong - it's like the national food over there. :)

I eat SPAM every now and again - Like you say, it's not my food of choice either but I was in the military and can tell you it's more edible than some of those MREs (K rations in my day). Hey, a slathering of Miracle Whip, slice of tomato, slice of cheese and several slabs of SPAM on your bread of choice is quite good. :)

Green eggs and Spam... yum!! :)

Noknojon I eat Peanutbutter and jam sandwiches. It's not just those in the USA. :lol: They're yum. If I don't have any jam in the cupboard then I will have something other than PB in my sandwich. Canned sandwiches aren't likely to take off here though.

I think vegemite is icky. Marmite is wonderful though!

Actually both are healthy, but in different ways. Peanuts are an excellent source of protein, and while they are high in fat and energy - peanut oil is actually a healthy kind of oil - one that is protective of the heart. There isn't much in jam other than sugar and fruit - but the goodness in the fruit is largely destroyed by boiling it to flinders when you make it. I only add the jam for the taste. :D Marmite and vegemite are healthy because they are fortified with a lot of extra vitamins and minerals, and you get a lot of goodness for the the serving size you have. It is naturally high in B vitamins as it is made from yeast. It is not a source of protein though - that's why cheese is perfect with it!

A little of everything in moderation is the key. :D

I know re spreading vegemite thinly noknojon. I'm a kiwi. :D We all grew up on marmite/vegemite on toast. There is a difference in taste for sure. My mother used to try and trick me but it never worked. I find vegemite a bit sour but marmite is goooooood.

Jelly is wobbly stuff you have with icecream at kids parties where I'm from. I think Americans call what we call jelly "jello", but I'm not 100% on that. It wouldn't go nicely in a PB sandwich though! :D
